If you have Windows 10 installed on your computer, Microsofts newest browser Edge comes preinstalled as the default browser. The Edge icon, a blue letter e, is similar to the Internet Explorer icon, but they are separate applications.
Does Edge replace IE?
On some versions of Windows 10, Microsoft Edge can replace Internet Explorer with a more stable, faster, and modern browser. Microsoft Edge, which is based on the Chromium project, is the only browser that supports both new and legacy Internet Explorer-based websites with dual-engine support.
What is better Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer?
Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications.
